Joyce did a great job taking care of our two kitties when my husband and I were on vacation. She sent us pictures whenever she visited and played with the kitties. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a professional and caring cat sitter.

Tony & Cameron groomed our 2yr Female English Cream Golden Retriever, and our Male 7 yr. 105lb American Rottweiler and I couldn't believe how awesome they were with them. Especially our rotti! The way they handle our dogs I was sold! Our rotti has never got any grooming done in his life and here comes Cameron & Tony who stole his heart. They listen, read and are very detailed in the body language of the dogs. They were very social and playful to where our English golden retriever is a very submissive dog and she started warming up to them. This is a TOTALLY different kind of mobile service which I was very pleased with. They really made in home mobile experience very comfortable, inviting, loving & caring for our dogs. Tony is very knowledgeable on pets! Any kind of pet you have. I learned a lot and had a very wonderful expeience! Thank you and if I must say get some rain boots for Cameron! Thank you Cameron!

Marina is the absolute best!!! We have 2 cats, one of which has diabetes. Marina came to our house twice a day for over 2 weeks while we were in Europe. She administered insulin. fed the cats, and cleaned the litter box ever time she visited. We have had many cat sitters in the past and it was obvious as soon as you meet Marina that she has such a calming presence and really understands and loves animals.

We have been using the services of Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Care for about 14 years, that fact alone I think speaks highly of what they provide! I appreciate the peace of mind knowing that our beloved cats are well tended to as well as the security of our home in our absence. We request one visit daily during which time the cats are fed, sand box cleaned and there is also some playtime which gives companionship. I like the idea that someone lightly checks the interior of the house in case there should be any maintenance mishaps. Being a bonded professional business I have no problem having Elizabeth retain a key and that way is easily available when needed.

Twink was fantastic! When our regular dog sitter wasn't available, we turned to Twink and feel so lucky we found her! We have three small dogs that are old, grouchy, and unique in their own ways. She handled them with ease, and they warmed up to her quickly. It must be noted that one of our dogs is blind and needs special attention so the fact that she was able to take such great care of all three of them is impressive. Thank you Twink!

I have tried other pet service companies in the past, & never had good experiences. A coworker suggested Fetch to me since they had used them and were always happy with the care provide. I was able to schedule a free meeting with the pet sitter, who was professional but also very caring, it was clear she loved taking. of pets and enjoyed working with the owners more as family than just a client. She did an excellent job of providing updates while we were gone, & went beyond our expectations in performing her tasks. She even sent us a couple of photos of our pets doing silly things! We are happy that we tried Fetch, & have used them several times now all with the same outstanding result!

Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.

The best pet-sitter ever! The ultimate professional, Cathy checks in ahead of time to confirm, takes excellent care of my pups and leaves without a trace. Best part is that I get pictures and videos of my dogs playing and relaxing, looking very happy. Will have her back again for sure!

I noticed Paul taking a group of dogs on an outing. It turned out that he provides service for my neighbors dogs. I just loved his attitude with the dogs and his loving nature I was planning a trip and needed a cat sitter for my 13yo very pampered Ragdoll cat. I crossed my fingers and asked Paul if he cat sat and turned out Paul said he does, in fact his very own pet is a cat. It was love at first sight for my cat. Since then Paul has cat sat for "Mr. Z." as he lovingly calls him several times for a week-10 days at a time. My big kitty is very well taken for when I take vacation and my anxiety is minimal. When I return home from a trip my kitty is happy and not tense or doesn't seem to miss me. Paul brushes my longhair cat. He feeds him and does the liter box and my home is neat and clean. I would definitely recommend Perfect Pooch and Paul Koval. His price is right and he is the ideal petsitter. If you need further information you can contact me. Felice Price.

My first encounter w/ Mike was in late 2015 when vetting pet-sitters to care for my elderly cat over the holidays. He was incredibly professional and it was a tough decision between he and one other candidate. Ultimately at that time I hired the other sitter. BIG MISTAKE. She went through my things and stole some items on the second time I hired her. After that incident I went directly to Mike due to the positive interactions I had w/ him the first time we communicated. He was thrilled to have the opportunity to take care of my Jasmine, so I hired to care for her while I was away for a short business trip. Mike was very professional, came over for a meet & greet, asked all the right questions, and ultimately took fantastic care of my girl. He definitely has a repeat customer in me, so I highly recommend him to anyone else looking for quality pet care.

We have worked with Ryan for the last 4 years and our dog Chipper loves him. We met with a few people before hiring Ryan, and he was the only person our dog connected with at the first meeting. Ryan is reliable, he has helped out when we are in a pinch, and since he comes 5 days a week, he is very consistent. We would without a doubt recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter/walker who you can trust and who will take exceptional care of your fur baby.

Stella is great! She responded promptly to my advertisement and was very flexible in accommodating my pet care needs. She and her family are very pet friendly. Our pet loved their company and his stay with them. Throughout the boarding period Stella kept sending pictures to keep us posted about our pet. I will recommend her and also will hire her services again.

I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!

This was our first time using Precious Fur (or any pet sitting service) to watch our 2 kitties, and we were amazed beyond our expectations for how wonderful they were with them. We were out of town for just over a week, and towards the end of our vacation, one of our kitties had an unexpected medical emergency. Jessica noticed right away that he wasn't feeling very well and was able to get him into the pet hospital that same evening to be treated. She dispensed his pain killers and made sure he was hydrating, eating, and was comfortable for the last few days we were away. We came home to kitties who were extremely happy, even after the medical emergency and disruption in their usual routine. We will definitely be using Precious Fur again and would recommend Jessica and Craig to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The care and love they showed our babies was beyond what we were expecting. They treated them like their own little family, and it makes the anxiety of leaving them when we are out of town a bit easier.

Elizabeth is just fabulous! She has been taking care of my two Labradors, Lucy and Betty, for five years. Elizabeth takes them out for a walk 3 times a week, feeds them, gives them medication when needed (even administers ear wash to prevent ear infections- common to labs). My girls need lots of attention and Elizabeth gives them lots of love, She is like their second mother! They are so happy the days that she takes care of them. I always feel my girls are safe and confident that they are getting the best care possible. I highly recommend Elizabeth for dog walking, boarding or pet care of any kind.

Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!
